Wes Brown: Wes Brown scored his first goal of the ISL which proved to be the winner against NorthEast United. Since his introduction to the starting line-up, Brown has impressed with his range of passing and organization of the defense.
Courage Pekuson: Courage has arguably been the best player for Kerala Blasters. The 23-year old has impressed with his energy, versatility and all-around play.
